Five civilians and three soldiers were killed in an attack by rebels on a Congolese army camp near Beni in the restive east of the country.

An AFP photographer saw the bodies of the victims as well as those of eight alleged guerilla fighters killed by the army after the raid on Friday at May-Moya in North Kivu province.

The killings are the latest blamed on Ugandan rebels of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), who are accused of murdering around 400 people in nine months of massacres in and around the major eastern trading hub of Beni.

The mainly Muslim rebels attacked the military camp with automatic weapons before being driven back after several hours of fighting, a senior army officer at the scene told AFP.
